Sack Of Milk

Sack of milk,

punctured by the tiny excuse for a straw.

I guess it went too far...
a rush of milk meets my hands


plip* as the milk falls to the floor...

Whatever happened to my box? So square, so comforting. These mistakes could not be made unlike that of a certain squishy mass that school lunch ladies force us to get or receive no food at all...

I really miss you box....

Screw you, Squishy Sack of Milk!!!

This piece was inspired by the milk sacks that our high school uses to punish us for some odd reason. I was infuriated that these flimsy sacks replaced our milk cartons and wrote this piece.
